Friday Night Flix - Aussie Classics Films

Exploring the history of our film industry, we’ll be checking out some Aussie classics. Australia created the world’s first feature film in 1906 and this was the beginning of our fabulous silent film era.

In this session we will look at all we’ve achieved in the last 120 years,... [More]

Yes, there are heroic coppers, but there are plenty of badge... [More]

Plus…they can look so pretty! [More]
